The Ontario Tech Student Union exists to enhance our student experience.
The union is governed by student representatives elected by their peers each year.
These students work together to lead the union’s initiatives.
It’s your union, your voice. Make the most of your university experience.
Run for office, attend the forum and cast your vote online.
